BIG B ADDED TO REDLIGHT KING'S ONES TO WATCH TOUR FEATURING ICON FOR HIRE
Big B's new album Fool's Gold is released July 9th.
Big B kicks off the touring cycle for his new album Fool's Gold today. The Cabin by the Sea tour, featuring Big B along with Dirty Heads and The Expendables, kicks off in Austin, TX.
Big B won't have any downtime this summer, as he has just been added to Redlight King's upcoming "Ones To Watch" Tour with Icon For Hire throughout August. Fool's Gold hits stores July 9th via Suburban Noize. The album is currently available for pre-order.
"It's cool to see momentum building for my new album and have it open up new doors for me as an artist. I'm working with a full band now and writing songs instead of just writing rhymes. I pride myself on that and the fact that I've evolved over the past couple of albums into a songwriter," said Big B. "I'm excited to get out on the road and share the stage with a couple great bands in Redlight King and Icon For Hire, and to have an opportunity to perform in front of new faces every night."
Fool's Gold features musical collaborations with Slightly Stoopid, The Dirty Heads, country superstar Colt Ford and pop icon P!nk. The end result is a collection of songs that are just as contagious as Big B's thuggish charm. With the entire music industry focused on finding the next huge star on reality television, Big B has taken a back-to-basics approach on Fool's Gold and filled it with fun spirited songs that can fit into any music lover's playlist. The album is rich is musical diversity and is cleverly inventive, as Big B seamlessly bridges the gap between rock, hip-hop, and alternative.

Since his smash release "Stroke", Aston Rush and Dvffy Carter releases a new summer anthem, RYDE!
Aston Rush, a native rapper/artist from the Bronx, is no stranger to being touted as NYC's new saving grace to Hip-Hop. Poised to becoming more than just New York City's
Hip-Hop "Rookie of the Year", AR's catchy hooks and slick wordplay combined with the bravado of an artist who has more than just two years dedicated to his craft.

This sexy dance craze has caused controversy throughout Latin America as it requires two people bumping into each other using only their HIPS. Despite this (or because of this!) dozens of videos and millions of views have been storming the internet as a result of this latest fad. The music that accompanies the dance is the infectious Latino Hip Hop genre of Reggaeton which is essentially Spanish rap over a Latino styled dancehall beat.
Video: Undefined (feat. Little Vic & Peter Leo) - "Closed Caskets"
Underground beatsmith Undefined has been tailoring his craft for many years, lending his raw, gritty production to a bevy of underground mic technicians such as Army of the Pharaohs, JoJo Pellegrino, King Syze, El Gant Sabac Red, Big Lou and more.
Earlier this week, the Long Island based producer unleashed his debut extended play release, Certified A-Side to the masses; a ten track offering which boasts features from the likes of Nature, Brown Bag AllStars, Nutso, Outerspace, Reef the Lost Cause and more. Among the tracklist boasts the Little Vic ("The Exorcist" prod. by DJ Premier) and Peter Leo assisted banger "Closed Caskets" which is now available in visual form.
Sparz is a recording artist and performer that you need to be up on. Coming into the game only a year ago he has already made some serious power moves with his two debut singles 'Losing Aint An Option' and 'Dreams' both going top twenty in the UK urban music charts. Now with his new mixtape release we get to see all the other styles that Sparz has.

PRESS RELEASE: Masters Of Ceremony Touring with Raekwon on the F.I.L.A Tour
Courtesy New Media Records.
After a great deal of work, investments and self devotion; Masters of Ceremony is finally getting their chance to rise up and perform across the Canadian market with the chef him self Raekwon. The duo previously known as raw illest continues to leaves their fans, friends and family members wondering what they will accomplish next. After the release of their latest self titled EP "Masters Of Ceremony" the urge to get on the stage began to surface. With the help and dedication of New Media Records and their management team lead by their 5 year long manager Joferson Blanco; the duo soon found themselves preparing for their biggest obstacle yet. From time to time it may seem like rappers are mostly speaking about themselves, how ever the truthful meaning behind their art can be far more than most could interpret. Masters of ceremony strives towards a much bigger goal while facing the adversities of making their music sound socially acceptable. This duo unlike most others portrait a sense of awareness for the musical content, "We seek to awaken the masses by encouraging the pursuit of ones goals and ambitions". Abstrakts' unique ability to captive and entertain aligned with his counterpart Grenades' lyrical metaphors makes this an interesting duo to watch perform. If your looking to watch the duo perform you can catch them as the special guess performers on Reakwons' F.I.L.A (Fly Luxurious International Art) tour. With the support of their official sponsors Pangea Life Essential and HRTLS Design Co and their official DJ 1oak (1 of a kind) from Los Angeles, this tour will be one to be remembered!
Cali MC/Producer Evidence has leaked another track of his upcoming LP, Green Tape Instrumentals. "Waste of Time" is some hard hitting Boom Bap that flexes Ev's production, and proves that he's equally versed on the decks as he is on the mic.
